"From Mormon to Apatheist
Speaker: Sue Emmett
Sunday, February 4, 2007 at 9:30AM to 11AM

After living for 55 years as a devout and very active Mormon, Sue Emmett acted
on all the information she had gathered for years, and left the faith of her
fathers. A few years later she classified herself as an agnostic. Sue's
presentation will give you information about the doctrines and dogmas of the
"Family Friendly" Mormon Church that are unknown to most people and some
insights into her journey away from all that she had believed. An apatheist, by
the way, is someone who just really doesn't CARE whether there is a god or not.
